As a teenager growing up in Toronto, it was the timely discovery of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" on her brother's stereo that brought forth the realisation of music's power to evoke, lift and transform the space it occupies.
Kle Savidge arrived in the UK in 1990, surmising somehow that she might find herself ever more engaged in the British soundtrack that informed her youth. She immediately found what she was looking for when she stumbled upon a nascent Creation Records, her home away from home for the following ten years.
When Creation imploded in 2000, she embarked upon a career in music supervision, keen to marry her love of film and music. She has gone on to work with acclaimed talents Dustin Hoffman and David Schwimmer in their directorial debuts, and for BAFTA and Oscar nominated films in the US and UK.
As a 26+ veteran in the business of music, Staci Slater has been CEO of The Talent House for equally as long; overseeing the placement of client songs and/or music in film, television, movie trailers, commercials and video games.
The company started in artist management and promotion and is attributed to the success of many pop culture staples.
As the music industry started to change with the advancement of technology, The Talent House decided to change with the times and melded the management business into a successful film and television licensing, pitching and clearance agency.
With offices in Los Angeles and partners in Toronto, South Africa and the UK, The Talent House is a complete licensing and administration company for many leading independent labels, publishers, artists, managers and other content owners in every genre of music imaginable. From rock and pop to marching band, world music, cover songs, vintage blues and hip hop - any sound that might fit to picture is of interest!
